It was hectic around the holidays and soon thereafter…things were forgotten. Registration for the Children’s Library Programs may have been one of those things. Now you find that your family is on the waitlist for many upcoming events. Never fear! There are drop-in programs (that do not require registration) coming up and there really is something for everyone!
These very popular recurring programs such as Guild of the Brick, After School Makerspace, Get in the Game, and Movie Mondays have been favorites for quite some time. There are also the events that are held quarterly or even yearly, such as, 2nd Annual Dr. Seuss Family Night Birthday Bash, Celebrate National Library Week with Us, and Book Tasting. Depending on your child’s age and interests, at least one of these programs can fit the bill for those “cabin fever” days when you are so tired of hearing, “I’m bored!
A program for all ages that is returning after record attendance is the Dr. Seuss Night on March 2nd. There will be games, crafts, stories, face painting, and snacks. Mr. Zap will be here to share his magic tricks and balloon creations. If you did not have the opportunity to attend this event last year, please consider it. This may be a new family tradition!
For those in kindergarten through 6th grade, National Library Week is a time to celebrate your Library. On April 11th there will be book related crafts, a scavenger hunt, and a drawing for a special Library prize.
During spring break on April 12th, for those in grades 4 & up, a Book Tasting is scheduled, featuring a book seller from the publisher Penguin Random House who will share what’s new in middle grade and teen books. There is sure to be a great book suggestion for all and a snack will be served with each “course “of books.
Since this is just a quick overview of what is in store, please consult our website or various publications for more information and
remember to put them on your calendar!
